    Suggestions for a recumbent rear mirror?

    I just got an older bike.E recumbent and I'd like to start using some days on my work commute. I really need a mirrow. Any particular mirrow you've found for a recumbent?

    Mirrcycle mirror that mounts on the end of the handlebar. Evo mirror with 55mm extension from Calhoun Cycle that mounts on the handlebar. Take-A-Look mirror that mounts on your eyeglasses.

    I bought a cateye mirror from REI and its great. Has the imiage like cars have in the right side. Objects appear smaller than they really are. Good visual coverage.

    I like to have a clear view of what's behind me at all times.
    I use both a flat mirror and a curved mirror together for the best rear view possible.

    How is your mirror working out?

    I had a bracket mounted mirror on my Performance Arrow. A poor weld caused me to have it off at the local welding shop getting beefed up. While without a bracket mounted mirror, I started using a mirror mounted on my eyeglass frame. Got the bracket back, but have not put it back on the trike. The eyeglass mounted frame works great.

    I have owned both Mirrycle and Take a Look. They are both great. I like the Mirrycle for my Tailwind, since it is always on the bike and stays in adjustment.

    A second mirror

    I also have the Mirrycle mirror and in fact added a second one for the right side. Especially if you are riding in traffic seeing effectively on your right on a recumbent is a significant issue.
